Bill Elms recognised in The Stage 100 list

Renowned Liverpool-based producer and theatre professional, Bill Elms, has been recognised in the prestigious ‘The Stage 100’ list.

The annual roll of honour usually highlights the 100 most influential people working in the theatre industry, however this year it was curated to focus specifically on theatremakers across the UK who have taken significant steps to help the industry navigate the pandemic.

Only 99 individuals were named this year, with the 100th place used as a tribute to all other industry professionals continuing to persevere in theatre and the arts during the pandemic.

Speaking of the accolade on LinkedIn, Bill said: “I was absolutely chuffed to hear today that I have been recognised in #TheStage100, this year acknowledging individuals across the UK who have gone above and beyond in helping theatre survive the biggest crisis the industry has ever faced.”

In August 2020, Bill created and launched the Liverpool Theatre Festival, a nine-day outdoor live performance festival to support the city’s theatre scene, which has been left devastated in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The festival brought musical theatre, drama, comedy cabaret and children’s shows together in a safe environment in September 2020. Bill has also been named one of just six finalists in The People’s Choice award for Outstanding Contribution to Culture, at the upcoming LCR Culture and Creativity Awards, with the winner being decided by a public vote.
